My plan that evening was to capture Lincoln Memorial at the sunset. I had left the office slightly before my usual time, only to realize that it was cloudy with slight drizzle. I walked towards the Lincoln Memorial with my camera. I got some decent shots of the monument but i was not satisfied. Moreover, as usual, there was a huge crowd gathered and being a Friday, did not help either. There was no way i could just isolate the Lincoln Memorial. After few attempts, i gave up and decided to walk towards the Washington Memorial, which lies exactly opposite to the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall in Washington DC.
I turned my back to the Lincoln Memorial, and what i saw is captured in this post. As it had rained the evening, after sunset hour, sky had turned pink and the beautiful reflection of the lit-up Washington Memorial in the pool looked stunning. Everyone seemed to enjoy the beautiful Lincoln Memorial that evening. Washington Memorial looked, to me, lonely and standing tall, kissing the skies. It is said that as you go ‘higher’ in life, you tend to be more in solitude. Here it was the wonderful piece of architecture living that philosophy.
